    Hello, is there any benefit to purchasing bands rather than using our cards for tickets? We have a 14 day ultimate tickets. If so how do we go about this. This is our first trip to Disney from the UK.

    Hello Amanda,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and I must say that it's always an added pleasure for me to assist another Guest from the United Kingdom with their jolly holidays to Walt Disney World Resort! 
    I really do love my MagicBands, in fact I have quite the collection now which I loop together like a Christmas decoration and proudly hang in my kitchen.  But seriously, apart from making a fun souvenir they are super functional during a Disney visit; are easy to use, will store all Ticket, FastPass+ and Memory Maker information, are water proof and of course are always 'on hand' so you're not constantly searching in pockets or backpacks for everyones Admission Cards. 
    Did you know that MagicBands are a complimentary perk for all Guests who are staying in a Walt Disney World owned and Resort hotel and UK Guests are currently provided with MagicBands upon Resort check-in. 
    Guests who are not staying on Disney property may indeed purchase MagicBands if they so wish at many Disney merchandise Shops and Stores or even at either Disney Store located at Orlando International Airport. 
    If I can help sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your 1st ever visit to Walt Disney World Resort please do pop back to ask me another question.
